Camera, lenses, headphone, and a watch are examples of personal property.

Homeowners insurance, renters insurance and auto insurance helps protect you, your guests, your home, your car, your passengers and your possessions from many covered losses. However, you may own some high-value items that your homeowners or renters insurance policy limits may not be adequate or do not cover. Plus, your policy’s liability limits may not be enough to cover the potential exposures you may face. To better protect you, you may want to consider a personal article insurance policy and a personal liability umbrella policy.

What is a personal article insurance policy?

Personal article insurance, or a personal article floater, covers valuable items that your homeowners or renters insurance may not cover because they exceed the coverage amount on your policy.
What are some items you might need a personal article insurance policy?

Jewelry, such as engagement or wedding rings
Electronics, such as digital cameras
Silver or other precious metals
Fine art
Sports and golf equipment
Other items with high financial value (typically worth $1,000 or more)

To help determine if you need personal article insurance for your items, start by making a home inventory. Listing the items in your home will not only be helpful if you need to file a claim but also allows you to review the inventory with your insurance agent to ensure your items are covered.

What is a personal liability umbrella policy?

If you are legally liable for an accident, you could face a lawsuit and be held accountable for damages. While your existing homeowners, renters, manufactured homes, farm ranch, condo unitowner policies may provide substantial insurance liability limits, a personal liability umbrella policy could provide additional liability coverage beyond that provided by your auto, homeowners and other personal liability policies.

For example, if you’re hosting a house warming party in your home and someone falls down your stairs, you may be held legally responsible for any injuries caused from the fall. Homeowners and renters insurance policies typically provide a minimum of $100,000 in personal liability coverage. This means that the insurance company may pay up to the personal liability coverage limit to the injured party for a covered claim. A personal liability umbrella policy could provide coverage beyond that amount if the damages exceed what is paid out through your homeowners, renters, manufactured homes, farm ranch, condo unitowner liability coverage.

Why should you consider these personal insurance options?

Personal article insurance or personal liability umbrella policy may be a good fit for those who have high-value possessions or those who don’t want to risk damages exceeding their current liability coverage. For more information about purchasing these types of policies in addition to a homeowners, renters or other insurance policy, contact a State Farm® agent.
